Last week, NASCAR made a driver remove a cannabis-related logo from his car. Surprisingly, the problem NASCAR officials had with the logo was that the logo contained a spelling mistake.
Carl Long, a world-famous professional stock car racing driver, had to remove the logo of a Colorado-based cannabis vaping company Veedverks from his car. According to NASCAR, the logo was not vetted and approved as per procedure. Apparently, NASCAR is not being hostile to weed; they are just appeasing their inner grammar Nazi.
Also, according to Veedverks’ posts on social media, the company
intends to pay for the logo, despite not getting it on the car. “Our
word is our bond,” the company’s Facebook post explains.
Carl Long has recently returned to NASCAR’s
competitions after an eight-year banishment over an unpaid fine from
the rules violation earlier in the driver’s career. The penalty was
commuted this season.
